Read Mark And Learn At the back of church there is an envelope for you containing a letter from the Vicar together with a copy of a booklet produced by the diocese and containing a daily reflection for every day of Lent. Please pick yours up if you can and we’ll deliver the ones left over.

Please continue to pray

…… for Alan Mather, Hilary, Nigel, Victoria,  and Frank Brown and loved ones and friends who need our prayers at this time. Please also remember the families of those whose funerals will take place this coming week.

Gracious God, as we remember before you the thousands who have died,
surround us and all who mourn with your strong compassion.
Be gentle with us in our grief, protect us from despair, and give us grace to persevere
and face the future with hope in Jesus Christ our risen Lord.
Amen.
